About This Event
Chicago Council members are invited to join Philip Stephens of the Financial Times to explore Britain’s decades-long adjustment to the loss of its empire and global power. Outside of the European Union and faced with an uncertain transatlantic relationship, Britain today appears alone, even adrift, as it attempts to redefine its role and purpose in the world. Drawing on decades of research and interviews with senior politicians and diplomats in Britain, the US, and across the capitals of Europe, Stephens argues in his new book, Britain Alone, that this moment has been six decades in the making.
Copies of Philip Stephens’ new book, Britain Alone: The Path from Suez to Brexit, are available to purchase through our local book partner, The Book Cellar.
